Growing up in the tiny village of Smith, Alberta, Darrel J. McLeod was surrounded by his Cree family's history. In shifting and unpredictable stories, his mother, Bertha, shared narratives of their culture, their family, and the cruelty that she and her sisters endured in residential school. Bertha taught him to be fiercely proud of his heritage and to listen to the birds that would return to watch over and guide him at key junctures of his life. However, in a spiral of events, Darrel's mother turned wild and unstable, and their home life became chaotic.

Why the southern accent?

Loved the story and book overall. However, the narration kept throwing me because I don’t picture a Cree from rural Alberta sounding like a southerner from the US. And the narration lilt kept changing from southerner to a mix of something else. It seemed out of place and strange which impacted my ability to fully integrate into the story.
